Surveys Asking You Personal Questions about Your Sex Life

Other

I have just completed a populus survey and it started off the normal 'have you ttaken part in any political rallies' 'do you friends ask you for advice'. They literally start all their surveys with the same boring questions. Then it was asking me if I would date someone trans and was I happy with my sex life, if not why not and getting very personal. I was clicking on prefer not to answer. I mean excuse me with whom and how often I have sex is nothing to do with anyone. I am shocked. That's the 1st time that's happened to me with a survey. Anyone else had some very personal questions about sex pop up?

I use populos too . Thanks for the heads up on. Personal questions. I thought if you clicked on Prefer Not Answer option you would get screened out. Im only starting on survey sites . A few are not worth the effort. Im waiting on my first cheque.

I don't think I'll ever get my £50 check from them as their surveys usually stall at 70% and I have to email and complain and get given a £1. I don't like their surveys at all. Same old questions and most surveys I don't work right. I had another classic question later on from another site asking me if I think my pet cat knows when it is Christmas. Hmm. I'm sure she knows when turkey/chicken is cooking but I don't think she knows it is Christmas. Isn't that what Bob Geldof wrote do they know it's christmas about - cats? 🤣

Eh, that's why I prefer to use Embee Meter CX, Panel App and Short Miner. Leave 'em running and earn points.

Good evening ShellyAnn i did the same survey earlier and to be fair yes i was shocked to. Never had a problem with populus and only reached my £50 today so keeping my fingers crossed i get paid for them it has taken a long time to reach though i think maybe eleven months.

I answered rather not say and kept going because I really want that £50. I've been a member most of the year - can't remember what month I joined. I think I'm still about £8 off the pay out. It's been a log slog and I find their surveys so boring as it's always the same questions but this one was a bit more lively.

I have never been asked those sorts of questions when doing surveys, but I would put down prefer not to answer as well. As you say, it is absolutely none of their business. I don't use populos but will be aware of this for the sites I do use.

Yeah, some of the questions are really weird ones. Some companies are asking these questions, because they develop products, like Durex and also some survey is from the medicine industry and those are the really weird ones.
